                                                                  From Google Image

It's beautiful, isn't it?  Galveston Island Historic Pleasure is one of the MUST VISIT Places in TX.  They have nice beach, nice restaurants around, a them park kids would go crazy for it.   GIHP features features family-oriented attractions including rides, midway games, a wide selection of food venues and retail shops.  A great place to spend the whole day here. 


It says on their website that Ride hours are seasonal and are subject to change without notice. Select a date on the calendar to view hours for that day. 

I just check a few date in October, 2012, they are closed on certain date, so please check the calendar before you visit this place. 

Rides & Amusements

"Pleasure Pier is one of the few spots in the world that has this many rides
over the water! You’ll be flying over guests on the Pier, soaring over the
Gulf of Mexico and anticipating your next ride!"

 Believe me, I was flying over the Gulf of Mexico, oh, I took a few rides, it's fun but make me want to throw up, but kids love it. !!!!

 Dining on the Pier

If you like seafood, you will love Bubba Gump Shrimp, the food is good but a little bit expensive.  It's worth it. 

"Welcome to Texas' first Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. location! Bubba Gump on the Pleasure Pier will bring all the entertainment and delicious food you've come to expect from the world-famous restaurant, complete with shrimp, just the way you like it and award-winning slow roasted ribs. Enjoy Bubba Gump's spacious dining room and enormous patio with splendid views of the Gulf and Galveston's historic Seawall."
